Review of Das Plonlein

Das Plonlein
Ranked #3 of 54 things to do in Rothenburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 July 2018

Best time to take photo at this location is in the morning before 10 pm during summer before the tourist arrival. Bright sunlight with its shadow casting on the wall create sharp contrast of colours and hue

The walls and the houses are interesting. Near there are a good and simpatic restaurant Glocke. The tower in the end of the street is amazing

"Plonlein" for a carpenter's "plumb line" is probably the most famous spot in Rothenburg (and also the inspiration for the village in Pinocchio). It's just down the street from the main square. Stop and appreciate the cuteness, take a photo, and move on.

It’s likely the most famous point for Rothenburg, and there’s no reason not to go and take a picture (at the designated angle).

City gates and other entrances structures always fascinate me. While it is jus something to look at, it is an excellent opportunity for a selfie.
